I was experiencing that same problem
using KDE. I was getting a lot of
pixel trash, X-CD-Roast window would
not load, and the screen would completely
lock up. I coudn't get it to do anything
so I chose to reboot the machine, power
on/off. MISTAKE!! The boot proccess
could not fix the errors created by not
cleanly unmounting the filesystem. So
uninstall and reinstall.
Anyway, to get to the point. My box
crashed twice running KDE (2.0 or
whatever came on the 8.0 install CD).
So I think to myself:
"Self, maybe KDE is the problem".
I reinstalled and used BlackBox,
which I like more anyway. Not one problem.
Moral of the story: "Maybe KDE is the problem".
